This is Sample 1 of a messed up shot!

Why do YOU think the shot is 'messed up'?
Well the first two kids are sharp, and when I printed this photo, the rest were actually blur?
I have a better example of a dodgy stage shot, but i cant upload it now?
Could be a shutter speed / shakey hand issue - the buildings over the road look in sharper focus than the last guy's head. Do you know what the shutter speed was?
Best to line them up so that they're on the same plane of focus (that is, not all at different distances from your camera.
Also, if at all possible, get the flash off the camera. It has blown out the first kid and barely touched the last in the line.
Finally - watch yer backgrounds - that green thing in bottom right is very distracting.
Was it an overcast day or bright?
What were the camera settings. i.e. Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO setting?
What mode was your camera in?
Oh yer, well spotted the building is sharp!! I never looked that far back.. No idea what shutter speed was. I never used to look, Since signing up here, I am now starting to look at shutter speed and dof F stops etc.. none of this actually made sense when i took this shot (not that it makes much more sense now, but i see the important of knowing what each of these requirements do)
Mr Fish man ! I have no clue to your Q? I think mode was Auto!
and thank you for putting a link onto my post
I am guessing that as you were the Second Photographer the main Tog was standing parallel to your group. Doesn't look like he would have got a great shot either with that builders bag in the background.
If it was an overcast day your camera may have selected a large aperture, if you then focused on the little boy at the front this would explain the shallow DOF and be the reason for the last guy being out of focus.
As flash was used it is likely that your shutter speed was 1/60th second, if this was the case then camera shake is also a possibility.
Ps you got some great shots!!!
And I Found the setting I used:
Focal Length 20mm
Quote: LensYews, Yess to ALL your Q.
IS was on.
I changed nothing with AF
I was using EX580 ii - for flash. FLash HI ETTL ? (whatever what means)
Pro was stood to my left in the shot, when he finished and moved on, I opened my big mouth and made everyone "turn" to me... and this was the end result..
Here's the rest of the information.
The mods are great, same as the last one just too far away again, but at least they are not posed as if they need the loo, too many blokes stand like that, in shots like these, my mate took a few, at his first wedding shoot, I imaged the shots, and forgot to pose the guys properly, and they are all standing looking like they are waiting to pee...I would have posed them here in a cluster not a line, and got closer. Chen.
Thanks Everyone! I'll be adding more soon!
